Six-year veteran Deuce Lutui, a backup last season with the Arizona Cardinals, had a workout with the 49ers on Monday, a league source told CSNBayArea.com.

The 49ers are in the market to add a veteran guard to a minimum-level type of contract. Lutui's visit was first reported by scout.com. Two weeks ago, the 49ers visited with veteran free-agent guard Leonard Davis, who recently underwent arthroscopic foot surgery and is expected to be cleared in two months.Daniel Kilgore is penciled in to start for the 49ers at right guard after the departure of Adam Snyder, who signed a 5-year, 17.5 million contract with the Cardinals.The 49ers will look to add competition for Kilgore through free-agency andor the draft.Lutui, a second-round pick of the Cardinals in 2006, has appeared in 93 games with 72 career starts. In July, Lutui (listed at 6-foot-4, 338 pounds) signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as a free agent but did not pass the physical, reportedly showing up overweight. The Cardinals re-signed Lutui, who spent last season backing up right guard Rex Hadnot.
